THEORETICAL STUDY ON THE NONELASTIC BEHAVIOR OF JOINTED ROCKMASSES

In-situ test results have clearly shown that rock masses behave differently from elastic bodies because of the presence of numerous joints and cracks in them. This report presents a mathematical model based on the elasto-plastic theory which explains the mechanical characteristics of jointed rock masses. /TRRL/
